Alpha "Oops..." II

  • Print

When Alpha came out, Orcs must've thought they were kings of the world. All their spells cost 1 ManaRed Mana! Now, obviously Ironclaw Orcs is supposed to cost two mana, but what about Orcish Artillery and Orcish Oriflamme?

Those two cards inadvertently received casting costs of 1 ManaRed Mana, later changed to 1 ManaRed ManaRed Mana and 3 ManaRed Mana respectively in Beta. The switch is not to be seen as a "changing" of their costs – they were never intended to cost two. It was simply a pair of misprints.
